If you have been paying any attention to the political landscape lately, it seems like just about anyone can be in the running to be president - even, it appears, a 15 year old who won 10% of the North Carolina ballot under the name "Deez Nuts." 10% of the vote isn't anything to scoff at, especially with many of the Republican front runners that aren't named Donald Trump getting a lesser portion of the vote.

According to information from various sources, Deez Nuts is actually from Wallingford, Iowa. They also found that he has a website - On the website, the "candidate" states:

Welcome to the official campaign website for Deez Nuts' 2016 presidential run. On July 26th, 2015, Deez Nuts(I-IA) officially filed as a candidate for President.

However, since Deez Nuts was gaining popularity, people started looking around for just who this person was. When they checked his FEC form, which he needs to get his name on the ballot, they found some things that were fishy, according to Rolling Stone. Take a look at his form, you might start to see some strange things yourself:

When they started digging, they found out that Deez Nuts is actually named Brady Olson and he's a high school sophomore. He said that he decided to run for president "as a joke" to see just "how desperate" people would get about their presidential nominees.

When he was asked how much longer he wants to take the "practical joke," he gave a great answer: "As far as America wants to take it."

Give him another twenty years until he is eligible, and we might have a real contender here.
